Flower Arrangements

 As a continuation of my obsession with flowers, here are a few of my favorite flower arrangements that I have created. I love adding unexpected things such as the avocados and the dried unknown honeycomb looking things. The first pink and green one is my most recent and my current favorite! It was a gift for a little boutique where I live. The green vase was a great find at TJ Maxx and I think the combination of pink hydrangea, peonies, dogwood, and tropical flowers make it a fun and girly piece!

Longwood Gardens

At the begining of August on my 21st birthday, I took a trip to Longwood Gardens up in Pennsylvania. And even though the heat was unbearable, the flowers made it worth it! I was able to snatch a shot of another cute little bumble bee. I love photographing insects; I find them fascinating. Has anyone ever been to the gardens there before? The greenhouses that house the orchids and other tropical flowers are definitely worth the drive!

Simply Sunflowers

At the end of summer for the past few years, there have been an abundance of sunflower fields covering the countrysides of Maryland. I can never help myself but to stop and photograph these striking landscapes. This is one of my favorite shots of a cute little bee stopping to smell the roses, or sunflowers for that matter. Isn't it amazing how beautiful these flowers are? And their seeds are pretty yummy too!
